The primary activity of SERN, as a network under the confines of a higher educational institution, is to undertake research on social entrepreneurship and social enterprise management.  Utilizing resources within the college, while being open to external funding opportunities, SERN has produced a portfolio of rigorous research relevant to the Philippines and the region.

Since 2013, faculty and students affiliated with SERN’s founders have been contributing to a social enterprise case study database featuring topics on challenges and strategies, incubation, and financing.  SERN aims to make the database accessible to social enterprise researchers to push the field forward.  The network also intends to share published research by the network’s authors, as well as curate scholarly and web literature relevant to social entrepreneurship research.

In addition to producing scholarly research as knowledge products, SERN aspires to create practitioner and student-friendly materials such as business notes, newspaper articles, and teaching cases.

As a network, SERN relishes the opportunity to work with experts in scholarship and practice to tackle various social enterprise issues.
